Girl Develop It Pittsburgh Message Board › Viewing and Panel Discussion of She++: The Documentary
The University of Pittsburgh's CS department is hosting a viewing and panel discussion for She++, a documentary about women in computer science, and you are invited! I'll be on the panel discussion following the documentary. If you are interested in attending, please rsvp with Tasha Isenberg (firstname.lastname@example.org) by Thursday. Hope to see you there!
Here is a recap of the documentary and what will happen during the discussion:
This short documentary collects research and inspirational pieces of Silicon Valley's unsung heroes to galvanize us to explore our potential as 'femgineers'. Stories from high school girls, recently graduated female computer scientists now working in industry, female technology CEOs, Stanford academics, and Silicon Valley venture capitalists, build momentum as She++: The Documentary accumulates facts and statistics, and most promisingly, personal stories. This film will startle the world and inspire girls, young and old, to take the lack of a Y chromosome and make a girl's vision unique and useful in the world of code.
A panel discussion on the film will be followed and will include members of the CS and Women's Studies faculty, executive members of industry, as well as the founder of Girl Develop It Pittsburgh!
